Coronavirus: No further deaths and just six new cases

The Department of Health confirmed that no further people have died with Covid-19 in Ireland.

It means that the number of people in this country with the coronavirus who have sadly died remains at 1,715.

This is just the third day since March that no new Covid-19-related deaths have been confirmed, with the first being 25 May and the second being 15 June.

The National Public Health Emergency Team has also said that a further six cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed, brining the total in this country to 25,379.

On Friday, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announced a “re-phasing” of the roadmap so that much re-opening will be brought forward to Phase Three, which begins on 29 June.

All hairdressers and barbers will be allowed to re-open from that date, while all sports will also re-commence, although with a limited number of spectators.

Churches and places of worship and cinemas will also be allowed to re-open, as will gyms and leisure facilities once social distancing and hygiene protocols are brought in.
